This and the Friday After Thanksgiving make for a four-day holiday week-end. Many Americans travel home for family reunions. Turkey, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie are central to family dinners in the U.S. too. George Washington, the first U.S. President, proclaimed the holiday in 1789. It is informally the start of the Christmas shopping season.
